PostSubject: Brake Pedal Rebound   Wed Apr 06, 2011 10:52 pm

I noticed today that while the Ghia stops much better from the rear brake refresh project, the brake pedal itslef is not returning all the way after being depressed.

I don't think this is related to the rear brakes being redone, but I think it made it more noticable.

I think the front brakes are dragging a little bit from this.

I guess it could be the front calipers or the master cylinder.

I haven't done any research online yet, so I thought I would throw it out there and see if anyone out there has a definate idea.

Is it the master cylinder? Could be it be the front calipers? Any thoughts?

From what I can tell there is supposed to be a spring for the pedal return.

I'll check that in the morning first...

THAT WOULD BE THE FIRST PLACE ID LOOK. THE RETURN SPRING COULD NOT BE WHERE IT SHOULD BE OR BROKE, LOL OR EVEN MISSING. I JUST DEVELOPED A LEAK IN THE MASTER ON THE FASTBACK SO NEED TO WAIT FOR SOME MONEY TO FIX THAT Crying or Very sad

Check the return spring and if the fronts are dragging you may need new flexible brake lines.

OR THE SEALS ON THE PISTONS IN THE CALIPERS. PROBABLY EASIER JUST TO REPLACE THE CALIPERS IF ITS THAT THO

You're right Cliff. Change the lines as well as they are not very expensive. Just cheap insurance.

I checked the return spring for the brake pedal and the entire pedal cluster appears to be in 'original' condition.

When I say 'original', I mean corrosion mixed in with some dirt and a little bit of rust.

SO, I pulled the pedal cluster out of the '73 and I am going to rebuild that with some new hardware and order a new master cylinder and some new stainless brake lines.

Anybody ever use an aftermarket accelerator pedal? Looking for a nice one...

I would like to order a rebuilt cluster from PedalWerks with an Eliminator accelerator pedal but $400.00 is a little bit more than I wanted to spend right now.

I would rather drop the front end.

I wish I had you budget. We went over our bugs pedals when we built it and it was not that hard. Not $400.00 hard.

Do your pedals move freely? You have tons of possibilities.

I knew you can do it.

Try to find the article about the pedal play on the net. Someone went into great detail about how much the pedal should move.

The as pedal seems to be the weakest link. Don is using a bed frame wheel for is roller. I had to make a custom pedal hinge. I like mine because you unscrew the hinge bolt and the pedal is free to replace the throttle cable. Quick and simple.

Pictures you mad man.

That's a good idea using the bed frame roller.

ITS A DUAL AND AN ODD DESIGN BEING TYPE 3. I WOULD JUST SWAP OUT ONE FROM ONE OF MY OTHER TWO PANS BUT THEY DONT MATCH. I FOUND A REBUILT ONE FOR $30 AT ORIELLYS. EVERYWHERE ELSE ONLINE I LOOKED RANGE FROM $119.95-159.95 + SHIPPING affraid I JUST DONT HAVE THE FUNDS RIGHT NOW TO DO IT.
